Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Read the following case study. Discuss both your thoughts around the issues
presented, and your response as a child and family health clinician to the parents in
this scenario. Use the appropriate academic literature to support your discussion.
Michael and Tara are the parents of 18 month old Ryan. Ryan is on the 90th
percentile for both his height and weight.
Both parents express concern that Ryan ‘does not eat’. They state that Ryan still has
6 bottles of follow-on formula per day, as they worry he is not eating enough food.
They report chips is the only vegetable he likes.
They have kept him on formula for the ‘extra vitamins’. If he hasn’t eaten anything
during the day, Tara puts weetbix in his bottle so he still sleeps at night.
Use the appropriate academic literature to support your discussion.
